Re: Another perspective on Persuasion

The line about not needing to be truthful when it's hurtful made me think of asperger syndrome and other forms of high functioning autism. (Honestly, my first thought was of Amy Schumer talking about her husband's brutal yet endearing honesty.) And when Louisa Musgrove is lying lifelessly on the Cobb, Anne is the only one to put aside emotion and act. And perhaps Anne paid so much heed to Lady Russell's advice because she couldn't properly weigh her own feelings.

You could make a compelling case that Anne is wired differently. Of course, you could also argue that this merely allows her to contrast with other female characters in the story.
